Service Description
About me:
Full time worker in the government and in my own home in Bakewell. If Im not at home, Im at the dog park with my two loves, the Labradors, or at the gym down the road. I dont drink or smoke and take alot of pride in my home. Im in a reasonably quiet street and Im currently saving for my own place, so I am home alot!

What you can expect of me:
You can expect I treat your dogs like I treat mine. My two Labradors, who are big friendly loofs, are my kids and absolutely come first in all aspects of my life. I work long hours, though I get alot of days off every week which allows me to spend time at home. I will feed your dogs on time, they will be kept inside when I am home, they will be kept clean, mentally stimulated and safe. These are the basic things I expect of people when caring for mine so this is what I will do for you. If there is anything extra I can do to accommodate, like walks/runs and trips to the dog park, I can do it.

What I expect of you:
Provide food, bedding and toys. I expect that your dog will come here reasonably clean, wormed and flea treated. Your doggo will be returned freshly washed (unless you ask me not to) and happy! This is a home, and not a place to dump your animal and bail ( have had bad experiences in the past)

Please warn me if your dog is a chewer/digger/jumper OR requires extra attention in an area, I will do my best to make changes around the house to avoid incidents.

The down side:
I do work long hours, and I do try and come home for my lunch break. However, expect I will not be home for 12 hours.
If your dog is an escape artist.... They will likely be able to jump one of my fences being 5ft high.
My male doggo can be scary at first as he is excitable, this will only last a few minutes before he is back to his sedentary self. This excitable behaviour can make some dogs really nervous, or other male dogs a bit angry.
If your dog doesn't like bad singing or being sung to all the time... best not come here :)

Sam is the very best fur baby carer you could ever ask for. She has taken care of our little rescue baby, Lady, a number of times, just as she takes care of her own. Sam walks, plays, spoils & just overall loves them all.

No one compares! Samantha looks after my 2 children and does an excellent job. She gives them plenty of love, affection and maybe a few to many treats. They love being with her and look forward to seeing her everytime!

My little dog Abby has had the pleasure to be sat by Sam many of times and is always well looked after. I’ve always had exceptional service from Sam. She is very much an animal lover and treats Abby as if she were her own. Thank you Sam for always being an excellent sitting for my little beloved pooch, Abby. Jess
